The AKILARIA 40 is manufactured in a female mould, the hull bottom is infused balsa and fibreglass sandwich construction and the upper sides are foam and fibreglass sandwich construction.
The deck is infused fibreglass and foam sandwich construction; all internal structures such as the longitudinal and transverse bulkheads are infused fibreglass and foam sandwich construction.
The floors are made of monolithic infused vinylester fibreglass from a female mould.
These are glued to the hull bottom with PLEXUS (methacrylate glue): this material guarantees a mechanical as well as a chemical bonding.
The deck is also glued to the hull with PLEXUS. Stanchions bolted through the hull deck bonding complete the connection.
All interiors are in composite material: chart table, galley.
Each and every piece is systematically weighed during the building of the boat.
Safety on deck
Stainless steel pulpit, two stainless steel side push pits, one central push pit, with a double row of stainless steel lifelines all around, supported by 5 stanchions on each side.
The stanchions are in stainless steel, tapered at the top with a support leg.

The cockpit was designed to optimize ease of manoeuvring and to facilitate navigation with a reduced crew and single-handed sailing.
Both tillers are fitted with Spinlock telescopic tiller extension. The HARKEN main sail sheet traveller is of self-supported type.
The steering positions are fitted with foot chocks on the cockpit floor which provide support during manoeuvres.
The cockpit is self-draining.
The companionway is fitted with two hatches, one of which closes the panels and which provides a comfortable and sheltered lookout point.
Two No. 2 type SOFOSCOOP bailers, electric charging pump, quarter-turn transfer valves, 750 litre ballast tanks, divided into : 500 litres in the centre (on the plating in the galley) and 250 litres aft (on the plating in the aft compartments), in order to play on the longitudinal balance.
Each ballast tank comes with watertight inspection hatches and vents to the deck.
The mast is in prepreg carbon, autoclaved and fitted with two levels of spreaders.
It stands on the deck on an anodised aluminium plate. The gooseneck fitting is attached with wound carbon.
The masthead is also carbon.
The boom is aluminium.
The bowsprit is in carbon on anodised aluminium flanges.
